Has anyone else heard about the Hersheys factory shutting down most of its U.S. Plants (including its original in Hershey, the town Milton S Hershey built) And building a new plant in Mexico to cut costs? While I realize that there will still be a plant open here, they are cutting over 1,500 jobs to outsource. (I cant find a full article on it)
I personally am now boycotting Hersheys. If we want to fix the economy, we cant let companies think outsourcing will help them.
I'll boycott after the Cadbury Mini eggs are off the shelf for the year. lol This happened last year around this time, or maybe the year before that. At that time they were going to be keeping Hershey PA. Anyone wonder if maybe nestle is running a smear campaign? Have they announced this publicly yet?
That's terrible, but I don't necessarily think boycotting them is the answer, and I don't even eat there stuff since I am diabetic :)
The taxes are being raised on "big corporations", minimum wage went up so they have to pay the teenager that sweeps the floors more then the job is worth, and many other factors like that play into why they will need to cut costs, its either that or close down because they have to charge more for each little chocolate bar, and then in which case we won't pay it and will be outraged by the cost going up... for the company it really is probably a tough call. It is disappointing that they feel they have to do this to stay in business though.
